A social experiment is a research project conducted with human subjects in the real world. It typically investigates the effects of a policy intervention by randomly assigning individuals, families, businesses, classrooms, or other units to different treatments or to a controlled condition that represents the status quo.[1] Social experimentation has raised many ethical concerns, due to its manipulation of large groups of the population, often without consent.[2]
